AC Milan and other interested Italian sides have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit of Brescia sensation Sandro Tonali.
Tonali continues to be at the centre of a lot of speculation related to the summer window, but there seems to be no outright frontrunner in the race for his signature, with a number of outlets linking Milan, Juventus, Inter, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
It was suggested that Milan have made their interest known to Tonali’s entourage and that they are expected to present both a contract offer to the player and an offer to Brescia, while a €50m asking price has been widely reported.
Cellino said that Tonali himself will choose his destination and for this reason there is the hope that his heart – as a true Rossoneri fan – will prevail in the end.
Tonali’s agent Beppe Bozzo was interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Spor and spoke about the future of the Brescia midfielder, offering a boost to Milan and the other Italian sides.
“I have not spoken to President Cellino, but I read with pleasure that he wants to give Sandro the last word,” he said (via MilanNews).
“There are undoubtedly important prospects, at his age few have had this possibility. It is better if he stays in Italy. He can immediately establish himself in a top club and it would be a shame for Serie A to lose him.”
